Lake Hodges is my go to place for trail running and mountain biking (beginner). Lots of options and you can find more challenging routes as you get better. This location is great because I don't feel too far from civilization when I park on the Rancho Bernardo Community Park side. Can return to my car or the park for a break, refuel, and go again.

I like the view and plenty of other trails to connect with. I won't ride here on the weekend as way too many families and hiker groups on the trails but weekdays are great for a quiet non technical ride for stretching the legs.
